Playing catch up

I have been lazy with regards to wash days lately, I last properly washed my hair 2 weeks ago – I did do a co-wash last week Wednesday because I needed to change my hair style from the perm rods look.

I was invited to attend Parliament a couple of weeks ago – so I really needed to have my hair looking good, so I decided to do a co-wash and a re-stlye on Wednesday. I followed the same routine as a normal wash day, but instead of using shampoo, I used the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturising Conditioner. I used The BodyShop Banana Conditioner for instant conditioning and the Dabur Vatika Intensive Nourishment Conditioner mixed with castor oil as a DC. I managed to use the last bits of the instant conditioner and the DC *whoop whoop* – more products in my empties stash. I put my hair in 8 flexi-rods and kept them overnight. In the morning, I took them out and created a pinned wavy look for the day. I took some pictures when I got home in the evening.


For this wash day, I wanted to do the TWA look again because I had an event filled weekend and I wanted to look extra cute ;). I am also aiming to use up the products in my stash that are nearly running out, so my normal wash day routine will be a bit mixed up for the next few weeks.

Prepoo: Motions CPR Triple Action Leave-In Conditioner, 20 minutes with heat

Shampoo: My ever so faithful Aunt Jackie’s Oh So Clean Moisturising and Softening Shampoo

Instant conditioner: Watsons Repairing Treatment Conditioner with Argan Oil – I let the product sit in my hair for about 5 minutes

Deep Conditioner: Carebeau Beer and Egg Yolk Hair Treatment Wax mixed with castor oil – I DCed over night. This conditioner does not do much to my hair – I am working on finishing it now. I will be mixing it with glycerine the next time I use it

In the morning, I rinsed out the DC and t-shirt dried my hair for 10 minutes and applied some coconut oil

Leave-Ins: Beautiful Textures Tangle Taming Leave-in Conditioner and I detangled in sections using a wide toothed comb

M&S: AfroBotanics Conditioning Moisturiser – I then blow dried my hair using the tension method and warm air. I then sealed with olive oil. I got too lazy to do the perm rods, so I wore my hair out during the day and put it in a doughnut bun in the evening.

I am really at a point where I don’t know what to do with my hair at the moment, ideally I should be putting it in a protective style in prep for the colder winter months, but I am just not inspired. I will just go with the flow at the moment and see where that leads me.

How did your last wash day go?

      I did Lebo, but only about 8 to create a bit of wavy-ness.
      I love co-washing! pity that I don’t do it too often

      Thanks Peechy. Downsizing a hair products stash takes some time, but we’ll get there.
